As expected, Ohio State is the top-rated Big Ten school and No. 2 in the country at 9/5.
The market isn’t giving any other B1G programs much of a chance, although undefeated Northwestern is at 60/1.
Wisconsin (100/1), Indiana (500/1) and Iowa (1000/1) are also listed.
Ohio State is coming off a narrow 42-35 victory over Indiana last week. The Buckeyes’ defensive issues showed themselves again as they allowed nearly 500 passing yards from Michael Penix Jr.
Quarterback Justin Fields had his first bad game of the season, tossing three interceptions. But the Buckeyes were able to control much of the game on the ground as Master Teague rushed the ball 26 times for 169 yards and two scores.
With Michigan faltering, Ohio State isn’t likely to face a ranked team until the Big Ten Championship game. The Buckeyes finish the year with Illinois, Michigan State and the Wolverines.
